. Well, you all seemed to have plenty to say about BBC1’s absolutely ridiculous “Christkickers” sorry I mean “Bonekickers” so I bet you just can’t wait to tune in to BBC2’s forthcoming “Burn Up”! It’s a “two-part, provocative drama set in the real-life context of climate change”. It gets better! This ..ahem…”topical thriller sees oil company executives, environmental activists and politicians collide in the battle between economic success and ecological responsibility”.
Penry-Jones stars as Tom, who, having been named the new head of Arrow Oil, finds his life unravelling as he’s pulled into a high-stakes game of power and international intrigue. Campbell plays his colleague Holly, whose covert collaboration with environmentalists puts her in great jeopardy, and Whitford plays Tom’s best friend Mack, a charismatic yet unscrupulous oil industry lobbyist. This sounds like a classic. I wonder did Greenpeace approve? BBC propaganda comes in many guises – this new drama is just the continuation of AGW by other means..
